Garden of Eatin’ Kenosha is a veteran-owned nonprofit that raises a harvest of fresh produce to donate to local soup kitchens, pantries, and other organizations feeding hungry people in Kenosha County, Wisconsin. Created in 2013 as a class project by Andy Berg, the Original Garden has since expanded to five additional locations, including an office space—currently under renovation—and a rural orchard. The organization’s rapid growth and community outreach philosophy provides educational volunteer opportunities for schoolkids and adults alike. Neighbors are welcome to volunteer at the gardens and share in the harvest.
A HUGE thank you to all our wonderful volunteers!
Without you, the garden would never be as successful as it is. We appreciate any and ALL time you spare.
We cannot go without saying how much we appreciate those who have donated items and financial assistance to our garden as well. We appreciate and are humbled by the great support we have received from so many!

Longtime GOE supporter Raymond Roberts generously donated this location. The pergola was built and installed by another Eagle Scout, Max. The fence was built and painted by Julie Milligan-Barr and Board member Deb Mitka. The bricks outlining the fence were donated by Eddie Wamboldt. GOE is planning more developments at this location.

Andy Berg, a student at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside, created the Original Garden in 2013 for a class project. In partnership with We Energies and with the help of co-workers, community volunteers and Parkside friends, Berg broke soil, added 10 truckloads of compost from the City of Kenosha, and put in seeds and plants. This garden’s harvest includes pumpkins, squash, garlic, leeks, kale and tomatoes.

Although the original wind chimes didn’t last, the garden has prospered. Dedicated volunteer and Eagle Scout Nick P. constructed twelve raised beds that have added to the annual harvest. More wind chimes—and more development—are on the horizon.
